about the problem with the communist nation of russia which has illegally seized crimea and is now making incursions into the eastern area of ukraine? i just returned from a trip, mr. speaker, on sunday, visiting some former soviet block nations, to talk about their response to the aggressive, illegal actions of russia and what's happening, to reset the table in the former soviet block nations. these are nations that are very worried about what they're seeing. they're worried because they understand that you can trust a communist to be a communist and their actions today are a mere image of what their action were formerly. russia recognizes if no one pushes back, they will continue to salivate over more lands and more influence and seek to dominate more people. russia's responsible for enslaving millions of people. in fact, they even murdered tens of millions of their own people under stalin. this is the regime that needs to be washed. and unfortunately under our previous secretary of state, hillary clinton, she gave, in my opinion unwisely, the reset button to the former soviet --

states and russia. how do you evaluate those comments? do you believe the relationship broke down before ukraine or should be viewed historically is a tipping point? >> there's no question that russia's actions in ukraine are of an entirely different order in terms of the severity of them. and the opposition they have brought from the united states and the rest of the world, compared to other things, although similar in many respects to georgia. but the other disagreements we have had -- syria, missile defense, and the like -- have been challenges in the relationship between the u.s. and russia, but this is obviously the most significant divide we have seen in a long time. but i think it's a simple fact that our relationship with russia has always been one, in the recent past, of some cooperation and alongside significant disagreement. we have gone down again and again the appalling support for the brutal, homicidal assad regime in syria. its refusal to allow united nations security council resolutions pass, condemning what they are doing and support the syrian people. we did not hide th
